Hotel offers choice of Mac or PC OS on one computer terminal


Something interesting, maybe wicked, came this way to me in the boutique Hotel Angeleno in Los Angeles on the 405.

I went to the business center to print my return airline boarding passes, and I found computers with Apple keyboards but a choice of PC or Apple when logging on.

I’ve never seen this before. For example, at Kinkos you go to a different terminal for Mac vs. PC.

I clicked PC, somewhat thoughtlessly, got into Internet Explorer, and then had a lot of trouble getting the tickets to print, with javascript errors, until finally the whole Delta thing worked.  But all of the shortcuts, of course, would fail from a Mac keyboard.
